Audi Threatens America



The above commercial may be humorous to some and others may take it as a Democrat/Obama bashing. But let me assure you, this is no joke. This is a blatant use of TV advertising to condition the public to become amenable to the idea of a police state. If you’re a Democrat/liberal, you most likely see corporations like this advertiser on the side of fewer regulations and the common man on the other side. If you’re a Republican/conservative, you most likely falsely see this car maker on the side of American progress and jobs and the tree huggers on the other side.

But this is a false dichotomy. Corporations push for unreasonable regulations like these so that they can squeeze out their competition, especially small businesses, because it is more difficult for the small business owner to comply with tough regulations. They are really sticking it in our faces with this commercial. They are basically saying this :

We (the almighty large corporation) are going to ram through Cap and Trade and then you will have no choice but to buy our cars. We will invade your privacy and take away your property rights. There is no way you can defeat our agenda because our pockets are deep enough to bribe any politician with enough campaign contributions to push this through. They will also bail us out with your tax dollars whenever we need it. You are really, really, screwed and we are arrogant enough to stick it in your face.
